The Verdict

E.Preston 1393S Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Routers

Manufacturer: Edward Preston

Plane Type: Router

Model No: 1393S

The Edward Preston number 1393S was advertised as a reeding, rebating and moulding tool. The tool also offered the capability of chamfering.

This tool came with six cutters as standard which offered a range of profiles:

    - Skew
    - Hollow / Bead
    - Round
    - Plough / Grooving (narrow)
    - Plough (wide)
    - Special Mould

This Edward Preston reeding / rebating / moulding tool was also supplied with a fence. The fence is fully adjustable and can be used on either side / end of the tools sole.

The fence is secured in place with the use of a screw. The fence has a runner slot to allow the fence to be ajusted to any distance within the limits of the runner.

There are two fence screw holes on either side / end of the sole allowing the fence to cover a wide range of positions.

The ring eyelet is used to secure the chosen cutter in place.

The ring eyelet appears a little out of place, my first thought was it was a replacement however this is not the case, the ring eyelet is indeed the original cutter securing mechanism; a mechanism which didn't become the norm.

The tool is finished in a black japanned finish.
